Don't ask God to make your life easier, ask Him to make you a stronger person.

What I've finished today . . . so far . . . .

I did work on my old world Santas cross-stitch but you can't tell I have done anything so no picture yet.

But I did manage to finish the hand work on my next penny rug.



They are from another pattern by Primitive Gatherings called "Petals for Penny Table Mat".  If I ever updated my website, it would be on there for sale.  I do have it for sale in my booth.  Next I just have to applique them to the background and put on a backing.  Penny rugs are so quick and easy to make.  And they take just scraps of wool.

Only an hour left in the show then the hard part....packing up, taking it down the elevator and into the van.  Let's hope the rain holds off until we are finished!


Blessings, Cathi

I always enjoy seeing a wool project. What type thread do you use to stitch them down with?
